Brunch with The Mad Fermentationist, Michael Tonsmeire

Long Island Beer & Malt Enthusiasts graciously opened up the below event to us, scheduled for this Sunday. It looks like a great time. The bar is walking distance from the LIRR rail road Massapequa stop.

The Mad Fermentationist himself is coming to Long Island to speak to LIBME and we’re pairing it up with a badass brunch at the Good Life.

Also, on Saturday March 28th, from 4 to 8 pm, Michael Tonsmeire will be signing his new book American Sour Beers at Bitter & Esters. At this free event Michael will be talking with homebrewers, discussing various fermentation techniques and answering questions. Michael will gladly try your beer and rumor has it he may bring some of his own beers to sample as well.

He consults as “Flavor Developer” for Modern Times Beer (San Diego, CA), for which he develops the recipes, process, and microbes to produce sour beers.
